I'm very glad I've found this app. However there's a basic feature it's missing. There should be a way to connect locations to characters (other than the vague link option) so it can show in their profile as their home or homeland. And show them as a citizen or resident in the profile of that location. This way characters can be categorized by their location. Would also be cool to have this feature for other characteristics. For example: attaching a language to characters and locations.

Found this app after off and on searches for YEARS for a good pinboard app. Turns out, this app has everything I've ever wanted for organizing my extensive notes! Well, kinda... the pinboard function just doesn't seem to work for me, and linked elements seem to have no sense of organization. Not even alphabetical. It would also be nice if labels were applied uniformly (alphabetical, by color, anything) rather than in the order they were clicked. Otherwise, this is like having a personal wiki!

I now use this app for everything. Writing, gaming, planning out school a day doing said school work, DnD. The boards that let you make a wall of connections, pictures, and notes on the fly are a way I've finally found to organize my life. It is just one of the many features I use in this app. My next favorite is the timeline feature, allowing me to make my line of events before putting it on paper. Couldn't suggest this app more.
